Couples Who Cohabit Before Engagement Are More Likely to Struggle Says warn couples who cohabit before getting married may not make it to the church


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2014 -- who are Set to Release The Largest Facebook App of Online Dating for Single Parents in the UK and USA, have warned couples who cohabit before getting engaged may struggle to the next stage of getting married.

Studies from the University of Denver found that couples that live together before getting engaged have a higher chance of the engagement resulting in heartache. The study also found that couples who lived together before getting married had a higher chance of a marriage ending in divorce.

The research found couples who lived together before they got engaged had a less happy marriage than those who waited until they were married, leaving to warn the dangers that cohabiting before marriage can bring.

Senior researcher, Scott Stanley, research professor, and Howard Markman, professor of psychology said of the study.

"We think that some couples who move in together without a clear commitment to marriage may wind up sliding into marriage partly because they are already cohabiting," Rhoades says.

A spokesman for who are launching their new online dating app to help single people find love and happiness explained:

"For people who are living together, it is wise before jumping to the next stage of getting married to sit down and talk about commitment. It is important for both couples to be committed to marriage and not just doing it because they feel they have too.”

According to recent research, couples that want a long lasting relationship and want to have a happier engagement and marriage should meet through a dating site. The research found that couples who met in a traditional way had a higher chance of an engagement ending in heartache than if they met online. It was also found that couples that met online had a happier marriage than those who met through friends or in a pub.

A spokesman for said: “The reason couples who meet online through a dating site have a long lasting marriage compared to meeting people in a pub or through friends is due to communication. By meeting online, couples get to know each other which is important when looking for long lasting love.”
